    Running On Empty

    I give of myself and forget to replenish. When I stop to regain, I have missed the train. I want to survive when the last stop arrives. It's a neverending race, I run to keep pace. It all slows to a stop and find tears on my face. I am not a quitter I hope I will start again...

    Time Is Short, Love Is Eternal.

    I love with all that I am....even when I disagree with someone I still hope they do OK in life. Suspicion has no place in my life, because when I love it is pure. In THIS life, you have got to love. To those dear EPeeps who help me out, love and respect me: I am...

    If you can, love with everything in you. The pain is so worth the happiness. There is nothing more freeing then loving another person with every single corner of yourself. My heart has been broken so many times, but I will never regret giving it to the ones I have. I have a lot...

    ...and Not Just a Lust-love,

    Love it all - your self, your front door, your friends, your abilities, your lover (but of course) your family, your fingernails, your next beer, your last wife (um, well...) your future idea! Love it all!

    I Say It And Mean It....

    In my life, I have been lucky enough to have loved and been loved in return by a few people. Not all that many, but enough for me. I'd only ever say I loved you if I meant it with all my heart. I have friends, family, an amazing girlfriend, who I love. And I say "I love you" to...

    Love with all your heart without fear of being hurt, without caring what others think, and without looking back to the past.  Love hard and make love harder.

    Tennyson's Words ...

    I envy not in any moods The captive void of noble rage, The linnet born within the cage, That never knew the summer woods; I envy not the beast that takes His license in the field of time, Unfetter’d by the sense of crime, To whom a conscience never wakes; Nor...

    An Instant

    Life can change in an instant. These words are so true. It happened last week in Japan, and it may happen tomorrow in my life. One never knows thank GOD. If I disappear from here, it may have happened to me! We should be thankful for all we have, and be happy with what we need...

    It Could Be Right In Front of You

    I have been hurt, but deep down, I would like to find my true love.  A soul mate.   I don't think I will find them anytime soon -- I think I have several more lessons to learn.  But when he comes, I'll be ready.  I just hope...

    Share Your Feelings

    If someday you open up your heart to someone and are intimate with them, give hugs, kiss on the cheek and forehead. Ask about things they like, looking into their eyes. Talk about „God“, life and you, be also silly. Make them „mad“, tease them and let be provoked...

    You Never Know

    You never know what tomorrow will bring. Live life to the fullest and nurture all relationships while you still can. Life is too short, never take anyone or anything for granted.

    Fated To Say Goodbye

    Fate is funny. It has brought us to this reality, yet it unexpectedly makes its ways of teasing us on dreams we've buried deep in our past. I always find it mysterious. Now it's even wicked, specially for meddling into the sensitive feeling I used to believe as love. It's been...

    My Love Is Expressed To Many

    Initially, I had a hard time reconciling myself to the title of this group. My ex and I broke up in 2007, which absolutely shattered my heart.  It took a long time for me to reconcile myself to our being permanently apart, too.  I did finally make that transition, but it was so...
